Tomorrow is my 20th anniversary...

.....Of my 29th birthday. I'm nearing the big 5-0 so I thought that I would try to snap a good photo of myself while I'm still in my 40's. I took the advice of one of the farmgirls and looked in the mirror while I was doing this and, well, they are passable. Especially since I rarely allow anyone to take my photo. So Farmgirls, this is 16th, 2007 on the eve of my last year in my 40's. My hubby is 38 and says that I clean up pretty good and don't really look almost 50 or as he puts it: "old as dirt." Awww...he is so sweet! LOL

Well, Mom has been feeling pretty good the past few days, so we got out and went to a couple of thrift stores. She found a big basket today to organize all of her what nots on the table in her room. I washed it well and it is sitting out in the sunshine drying right now, otherwise I'd post a photo of it.

I received the most yummy plate of cookies from Becky in Pennsylvania yesterday. Mom and I had just sat down to have a cup of hot tea and watch a movie when the mailman arrived with the Valentine treat. We were thrilled and really enjoyed these lucious yummies with our tea and movie, but before we ate any, I snapped a photo for all to enjoy! Yum--yum. Oh, BTW there are none left!

I did do some pick up in my crafting space. Tasha inspired me to organize and clean up. So I hung up all of my vintage and floaty fabrics on a rack in the corner. You can see an apron in progress on my cutting/sewing table and another one draped on my comfy thrifted barrel chair. It is going to be winging its way to an unsuspecting Farmgirl friend, whom I think needs to be gifted with this one, so she can hang it in her kitchen! I've decided to RAOK friends with aprons. It is something that I like to make and hopefully they are pretty nice. And I hope the recipients think they are nice too.

I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into my creative space and mind.

I will be going out in a few minutes to select a new tube of lipstick for my birthday present! It is the only thing that I want for my birthday. I have my health, my mother is doing well for the time being, I have a loving and generous husband and three wonderful kids and lots of farmgirl friends....oh and chapped lips! *g*

So, thanks for blogging with me today.

Thanks friends! Yes, I think I'm going to have to start saying the 10th of my 39th instead. I might pass for 39 but definately not 29 anymore! LOL

Final thoughts...

Thank you for visiting today. Feel free to sit for a spell and wander through my archives of sewing projects, aprons, original poems and stories, musings and vintage treasures. I really love guests in my home....and if you wish, leave me a comment so I will know you were here! AG
